Test the hard drive by holding menu+centre to reset and immediatly holding left+centre when it reboots to enter the ipod diagnostic menu. Use the right arrow to highlight the Memory or HDD menu. Select it and you should be able to find out if the drive is dead.

If the drive is ok, try restoring the ipod through itunes.


Post back here if the drive is wrecked.

IPod nano, 3rd generation isn't playing music if it's not plugged into iTunes. It gets stuck on the music menu, and furthermore my pictures don't show up.


Hi,

What u can try is to connect it to computer again and try the step1:

Step1
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step
Step 2 to add pictures to ipod

Step2
step_1.gif Connect your iPod to your computer using the cable that came with your iPod.
step_2.gif When the iPod icon appears in iTunes, select it and click the Photos tab.
step_3.gif Select "Sync photos from" and choose the photo application or folder that contains the photos you want from the pop-up menu.
If you're using Adobe Photoshop Album 2.0 or later, or Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 or later, you can export photos directly from those applications to your iPod by choosing Photoshop Album or Photoshop Elements from the pop-up menu.
step_4.gif Choose whether to move all your folders or albums, or only selected folders or albums.
step_5.gif To also move the full-resolution versions of these photos to your iPod, select "Include full-resolution photos."
Note: You should select this option if you plan to move the photos from your iPod to another computer

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds.

You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector)Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.
